Hi,

Kunena has not any blacklist of users. Your problem has nothing to do with Kunena.

Could be that you are using some other component for authentication of users?

TKtemp is correct. There is no "blacklisted" message generated by Kunena.

You can re-install K 2.0.4 and you will not lose any forum messages; re-installing K 2.0.4 will not change any configuration settings or categories that you have set-up. Re-installing K 2.0.4 will replace any custom changes that you may have done to Kunena but, because there is no "user blacklisting" within Kunena, I don't think anything is going to change.

It may help if we could see your Kunena configuration report but, honestly, I cannot see how Kunena can be behind these messages. I think these messages are generated by some other Joomla extension that you are running on your website ... but what is that "other" extension, responsible for "blacklisting" users, I do not know.

I discussed this issue with the Kunena team. I searched the language file - there is no word "blacklist" in the Kunena language file. You are using JomaSocial; maybe JomSocial has some kind of "user blacklisting" feature?

The message "Failed to authenticate: User is blacklisted" is generated by Joomla 2.5.

In J! 2.5.9, the reference comes from the file ../language/en-GB/en-GB.ini, at about line 144:
JGLOBAL_AUTH_FAILED="Failed to authenticate: %s"
and, in the same file, at about line 154:
JGLOBAL_AUTH_USER_BLACKLISTED="User is blacklisted"
From this we can see that the message is not caused by Kunena but, instead, it is generated by Joomla.
